I love houses. I love homes even more because they create memories. I remember my bedroom as a kid and the bunk bed I shared with my brother. My parents created a home and I have a lot of wonderful memories.
Before becoming a full time Real Estate Agent, I was an Aerospace Engineer. So I can promise you, I have very high standards and strong attention to detail. I also have very good technical skills and put them to work for my clients. I will explain this in more detail when I meet with you.
I started investing in Real Estate in 1996. I have bought, sold, rented, rehabbed and flipped homes, condos and multi-family complexes. I've purchased market homes and distressed properties from Realtors, FSBOs, investors, wholesalers and banks. I have used standard loans, FHA, VA, owner financing and even hard money loans.
Once you've selected me as your Real Estate consultant, I take the time to understand every goal you have. Then, I start working as I am you. I have a lot of experience from my 20+ years of investing in Real Estate and I can immediately start putting all that knowledge to work for you.
Houses are great, but homes are special. If you are buying, I'd like to help you find a house you love so you can make a home. If you are selling, I'd like to help you show buyers how your house can be their home.
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
As a special touch, all of my clients will have a complimentary interior design consultation with Amber Homes and Design. For sellers, this can be used for staging. For buyers, this will help you see the inside of a home with upgrades or give you guidance for remodeling after closing.
Lastly, I am a Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) and can assist with your global real estate transactions, which are significantly different and more complex than domestic deals. I love to travel and have been to all continents except Antarctica.
"Jim, just wanted to say thanks again for all your help getting the condo sold. It made me really nervous to see the other condos in the complex that weren’t selling, so I was very happy that you were able to get mine fixed up and sold so quickly. I will pass your name on to anyone I know going to Charleston. Thank you."
-Lt. Guy, Client
"Jim is the best! We have been working with Jim for about a year trying to find the perfect home. He is patient and knowledgeable about the area. He knows his stuff and knows exactly what we are looking for in a house. I can’t put into words what a great guy Jim is and how much he has helped our family get familiar with the area. I would recommend him in a heartbeat. I wish there were more stars to give!"
"Jim was everything we could have hoped for. He was very professional, honest, and on point at all times. We were in another state and Jim took care of everything for us the exact way we would have done it. We had the luck in having multiple offers on the house in one day. Jim handled the negotiations very well and ended up getting us more than we asked for! Amazing realtor and awesome experience!"
"Jim made the process extremely easy. He took care of most of the processes and inspections because I moved out of town shortly after listing the house. He did a lot of hard work getting several offers in the first few days, ultimately selling the house after two days on the market."
-Nick L., Client
"Great work. Didn't have this [marketing approach] done before. This is the extra mile. More determined than any other agent I came across. Remarkable, no joke. Thanks for the effort."
-Ted V., Client
"If you are looking for a Real Estate Agent, you cannot find a more honest, conscientious, and dedicated individual than Jim. He is the best! I was looking for investment property and Jim has assisted with the purchase contract of several investment properties and understands what is required to make an intelligent decision that meets his client's goals. When I was unavailable to travel, he represented my interests in purchasing property. "
-Rich B., Client
"Jim and Jelena staged our home beautifully and got it sold in just over two weeks! We got a full price offer and were so delighted. I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants thoughtful, professional service."
-Dave B., Client
"Jim was a crucial asset in purchasing my first home. I was completely clueless about the process. He helped me research first time home buyers' grants in my area and advised me on how to secure it. His knowledge and expertise made my process smooth and painless. I have been in my condo for 16 years now and the property value is only going up. I wouldn't make any other real estate decisions without consulting Jim first!"
-Effin C., Client
"Jim has helped me with buying my first house, walking through an FHA loan, and still helps me with my investment properties! Jim is thorough, dependable, wise, and persistent...I highly recommend him!"
"Jim was great to work with. He is well organized and with great speed found appropriate places to look at. He went above and beyond in all aspects of helping me buy my townhome. He has a good reputation and connections with local builders which made the process accommodating to my needs. Recommend him with out reservation."
-Madelaine L., Client
"Jim Roberts helped my family and I when we transferred to Charleston, SC. He was extremely professional, courteous, helpful, friendly, and above all, honest. He was able to show us multiple properties via video tour, as we were stationed in Virginia at the time, and spent many hours finding us the perfect place, and had it ready and lined up for the day we got to town. He went above and beyond our expectations, and highly recommend him for any real estate need"
-Anthony I., Client
"We worked with Jim Roberts to sell our home, and we couldn't have been more pleased! We received multiple showings immediately after the house went on the market, thanks in large part to Jim’s incredible work. Jim brought in a fabulous photographer and drone to showcase our home online, which created much more foot traffic and brought in serious buyers. He also brought in a designer to help stage our home, which helped make it more appealing to a larger group of potential buyers. His marketing strategy is top notch and can't be beat! After receiving and accepting an offer, Jim was wonderful in keeping the transaction moving along and getting to closing in a timely manner. He was always available to answer our questions (and the buyers!). We had a great experience!"
-Edgard M., Client
"Jim helped me come up with a market analysis I needed; he was very prompt, pleasant, and professional. He immediately put me at ease and was a pleasure to deal with, making me feel comfortable with a process that was completely new to me. I wouldn't hesitate to use him in the future, or recommend to others. Thanks so much Jim! "
